Paul from over at MoDaCo has confirmed that ASUS will be launching a 3G variant of the Nexus 7. Details are scarce as to what pricing will be and when it will be available in each of the place we call earth. Paul was able to confirm that a launch will be happening in 6 weeks — no doubt for Google’s Play Store.
There’s not a huge amount to say… a 3G version of the Nexus 7 is coming, with no other hardware changes. Asus is currently ramping production in preparation for launch in around 6 weeks, with the exact launch date and territories still to be confirmed.
The major downside we’ve been hearing from people — regarding the Nexus 7 — is the the lack of a 3G option. Now that 3G is coming, will you be buying one? Or perhaps swapping your Wi-Fi variant for the 3G version. We’ll no doubt be hearing pricing for the device in the next few weeks — when we do we’ll announce it.
